Schmidt Rubin 96/11

The country that avoids war and the country that fights but has a hard time winning have been combined. The Swiss made some excellent firearms and the French made some unique and occaisonally inspiring ones.

Happy New Year

as i told at Duncan`s G 11 thread i would open a new file for my latest achievement.
Swiss Rifles are not on my" i must have file"
i was looking for another Mauser 98 Long Rifle and my target are on a Turk Mauser 1903 unfortunately my bid at EGUN cames to late and the Rifle was gone .....
so i poke a bit and my eyes catch a Swiss Long Rifle IG 96/11 mhh . :shock: maybe it would replace my Mauser 98 behavior... long story short iv`e been very impressed about this fine Rifle
taking some pics from the 96/11 and targets shoot have taken last week.

first shots are done with GP11 and Reloads from a friend with jacketed Bullets but my own passion relay on cast bullets loads.

my receipt :

Lee .312 - 185 Bullets
Alu Checks

Sized to .309 and .310

Home Made Lube and finaly Ben`s LLB

Here in Germany we US Powders are rare and expensive now so i use the all time available LOVEX Powder
Lovex are Accurate Powder because Lovex produces for Accurate in Europe.

For my loads i use D036 = AA # 5

12,4 grs Do36 no Filler light Factory Crimp

13grs D036 no Filler light Factory Crimp

50 m rested on a Sandbag

Rearsight 300m

POA 6 o Clock Hold

I shoot both diameter on Target 1 and 3 10 shots each
.310 Bullet Impacts are a bit deeper as .309 er

Targe 2 are .309 Bullets only.

vertical stringin depends on my eyesight / light condition at this day

regards from Germany

KLaus :D

Great post Klaus and it looks like a nice rifle. I have not reloaded for mine yet as I still have some PRVI to shoot.
When I do it will be Vhitavuori N140 43 grains with a jacketed bullet :)
